Video: Air Suspension Pump Removal DIY Guide

Hi guys, I just uploaded a video guide for removing the air suspension air pump from the rear of my E53 X5. I have a dual-axle suspension. My pump was showing signs of failing - noise and susp. inactive lights. I purchased a new pump from Arnott Industries. This video illustrates how to remove the pump from the truck and housing.

Weight distribution. The battery is center over the rear so the weight of the battery is carried almost entirely by the rear tires.
